Experience Our Scotland

Our customized, private insider tours of Scotland feature our favorite places and experiences in the country.

History buffs will love...

Stirling Castle, where Mary, Queen of Scots was crowned in 1543.

What’s my clan?

We’ll arrange for you to research your family history and find your tartan. We can also help non-Celts pick a pattern to adopt as their own.

Neat...

Savor the warm burn of single malt Scotch whiskies. The flavors and aromas vary dramatically depending on the location of the distillery and the qualities of the peat, barley and water used in the distilling process.

Check your spelling...

If it’s made in Scotland, it’s “whisky.” If it comes from Ireland or the U.S., it’s “whiskey.”

Rejuvenate at The Gleneagles Hotel...

With a leisurely walk around the beautiful grounds, a round of golf on one of the three world-class courses, a massage in the spa or a meal at the Michelin two-star restaurant.

Warm your bones with...

Cullen skink, the traditional Scottish fish soup made with smoked haddock, potatoes and onions.

Believe it or not...

Haggis is delicious. Just don’t ask what’s in it.

Experience architectural genius...

At the Glasgow School of Art and other buildings designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh

Kids will have a blast...

Driving mini-Land Rovers around the off-road course at Gleneagles.

Kids will also love...

Adults will love...

Clay-pigeon shooting, afternoon tea, and modern Scottish cuisine focusing on fresh seafood and other local food products.

Fine wool sweaters, jackets, skirts, hats and scarves .

Live like royalty...

By staying in a historic Scottish castle hotel.

A private dinner in a castle’s “secret” dining room...

Give the bookshelves a gentle push between the Sir Walter Scott and Robert Burns to reach the hidden space for your romantic meal.

Walk through house-high hedges...

At the Royal Botanic Garden in Edinburgh.

Explore Edinburgh’s unique cityscape...
